Cook School Terms & Conditions

Cancellation Policy

Since our cook school classes are ticketed events that require advanced preparation, our cancellation policy is strict.

If you request a cancellation 10 business days before your scheduled class, we will gladly issue a full refund. If you notify us 5 business days before your scheduled class, we can transfer your seat to a different date. Please note we can only do this twice. As with any other live event, no refund or exchange will be issued for any cancellations requested within 5 business days of your scheduled class. There are no exceptions. However, customers requesting a late cancelation have the option to take a free online class of their choosing.

Extra measures have been implemented to keep our cook school a safe, clean environment, including the placement of hand sanitiser on our worktops in addition to antibacterial soap by our kitchen sinks. Until 19 July 2021, our classes are limited to six students from different households. A larger group can be accommodated if students are from just two households; please email cookschool@boroughkitchen.com to enquire about availability and private classes (at no additional cost). Masks are required to be worn by all students, teachers and assistants, except when seated to eat. If you are exempt from wearing a mask for medical reasons, please present your card upon entry.

Cancellation Policy - Cook School Private Hire

To cancel a class, you must notify us by emailing cookschool@boroughkitchen.com, even if you have informed us via phone call. A full refund is available if you notify us more than one month before the scheduled class. If you cancel 10 business days in advance of the scheduled class, we can offer a 50% refund. Unfortunately, any cancellations after this 10-business-day window are nonrefundable. To adjust the number of attendees, we require advanced notice of 5 business days.
